Celebrating Our Roots: A Benefit Concert for PineCone featuring Bloomsbury

Some bands seem to embody the community from which they spring, and Bloomsbury is one such band for Raleigh. Raleigh has long been a hotbed for string band music. As host to one of the largest radio stations in the Southeast prior to World War II, Raleigh’s WPTF was a prominent stop on the country music radio circuit, attracting the likes of Charlie Poole’s Swingbillies, the Monroe Brothers, Delmore Brothers, Blue Sky Boys, J.E. Mainer’s Mountaineers, Johnny & Jack/The Tennessee Hillbillies (w/Kitty Wells & Chet Atkins), to name but a few. Raleigh’s history of high-quality acoustic roots music runs long and deep. And for more than 40 years, Raleigh’s own Bloomsbury has continued this long-standing tradition of music making. With tight vocal blends and a constant swapping of instruments, the group showcases the wide range of folk music prominent in the region, including blues, bluegrass, gospel, old-time fiddle & banjo tunes, and much more. 

Bloomsbury is Wade Hargrove, Mel Williams, Wade Smith, John Crumpler, Ron Raxter, and Karen Linehan.
